What Others Have to Say About Story Wise Coaching

Thank you for your feedback today. It was very helpful and just what I needed to hear. Your acute listening skills allow you to access just what is needed to create a “sharp” story.
— Mary O'Meara
Thank you so much for such a supportive and easeful introduction to the art of storytelling. I was intrigued, and surprised, to see the way each story emerged and developed as it was polished some more. Seeing this animated aspect of myself come out and delight in sharing the story was amazing to me.
— Gillian Hume

Why work with Kate Lawrence?

Kate Lawrence storyteller

Nearly two decades in law, listening, presenting and persuading; two decades creating logic out of a mess, creating flow and order where there was none, shaping stories to persuade and make sense, are all available to you when you work with Kate to craft your talk.  

Add to that the last seven years in story - telling, listening, teaching and hosting and you have a coach with a keen sense of audience engagement, connection and story, as well as message and persuasion.  And she really listens to you, to find who you are and what you want to say.

Make a time today to talk with Kate about your goals and  how coaching could help you achieve them. 

Do you want to...

storytelling coaching

Present information: teach, tell and expound with all of you: your values, your history and your emotions, and be more engaged and engaging?

Make a pitch, persuade with speech, sell yourself, ply your heart and your passion? Then use story, the oldest connector there is, to show who you are,  what your point is, and why you're doing what you're doing.

Explore your life, make sense of your past, deepen into who you are and what you stand for, create a story shape to show yourself and others where you have come from and where you are headed?

 Write?  Do you want to uncover the bones of your story, know its themes, emotions, messages and structure? 

Tell a true personal story as part of a bigger presentation or performance? At The Moth, a family function, a conference or a meeting? Do you want to know how to tell a good one, that shows behind the facade of outer events, to who you are as a person?

Then book your free, 30 minute discovery session to talk through your speaking goals and find out how coaching with Kate could help you achieve them.

    Praise for Story Wise.png
    Kate’s Story Wise webinar has been very helpful in refining my presenting skills and public speaking. As a Yoga teacher and facilitator I share stories on a daily basis.

    Story telling is a beautiful art and whilst it is easy to assume that we can automatically do it, Kate ’s webinar breaks it down so that we can more effectively connect and convey our experiences to others. Kate was very supportive and gave excellent feedback which really helped me understand how to craft a story that has substance, direction and humour. Finding my voice through storytelling and being heard has been a deeply satisfying experience. Thank you Kate
